Welcome to the weekly party for hand stitching enthusiasts!
This past week I hand stitched 221" of quilt binding in order to finish my August UFO before the end of the month. You can see the finished quilt here.
Part of the hand stitching was done while sitting on this bench. It is one of my favourite places to sit and think and stitch. It's very quiet here, just the sound of the water, with occasional geese and birds flying by. As summer comes to an end, and the temperatures drop making it more comfortable to be outside, I want to soak up as much outdoor time as possible.
As you can see, Granddog Max stands guard to make sure that no one walks too close to the stitching.
This gave me an idea for another Slow Sunday Stitching Photo Challenge. We haven't had one for a while and I would love to see where you do your hand stitching when the weather is good. It would be great if you could take a photo while stitching in your favourite place and put it on your blog post today. What is the view you enjoy in your corner of the world?
All blogs in the link up with a photo of their stitching place will be entered to win the draw for 2 fat quarters - one fabric is of old fashioned cameras (of course it is... it's a photography challenge!) and the other is a white on white fabric with turtles.
Wait, you can hardly see the turtles... let me try again.
Can you see them now?
Turtles honour the Slow Sunday Stitching motto of taking one step/stitch at a time, savouring any slow progress, and understanding the value of deliberately moving in the direction of your goals.
Link up your blog post below and share your hand stitching progress with us. And I hope you'll stop by tomorrow to see my second block for the Save the Bees BOM. I'll be finishing the hand applique this afternoon.
